Cospeciation of Psyllids and Their Primary Prokaryotic Endosymbionts
ABSTRACT Psyllids are plant sap-feeding insects that harbor prokaryotic endosymbionts in specialized cells within the body cavity. Four-kilobase DNA fragments containing 16S and 23S ribosomal DNAExpand

Inclusive fitness theory and eusociality
Arising from M. A. Nowak, C. E. Tarnita & E. O. Wilson 466, 1057–1062 (2010)10.1038/nature09205; Nowak et al. replyNowak et al. argue that inclusive fitness theory has been of little value inExpand

Models for the estimation of single tree volume in four Miombo woodland types
Abstract Single tree volume estimation models are produced for four Julbernardia-Brachystegia woodlands in Malawi. The estimation models are based on the regression of volume on one or a number ofExpand

Benchmarking next-generation transcriptome sequencing for functional and evolutionary genomics.
Next-generation sequencing has opened the door to genomic analysis of nonmodel organisms. Technologies generating long-sequence reads (200-400 bp) are increasingly used in evolutionary studies ofExpand

Specificity in the symbiotic association between fungus-growing ants and protective Pseudonocardia bacteria
Fungus-growing ants (tribe Attini) engage in a mutualism with a fungus that serves as the ants' primary food source, but successful fungus cultivation is threatened by microfungal parasites (genusExpand

Mixed Infections, Cryptic Diversity, and Vector-Borne Pathogens: Evidence from Polygenis Fleas and Bartonella Species
ABSTRACT Coinfections within hosts present opportunities for horizontal gene transfer between strains and competitive interactions between genotypes and thus can be a critical element of theExpand

PHYLOGENETIC AND MOLECULAR EVIDENCE FOR ALLOCHRONIC SPECIATION IN GALL‐FORMING APHIDS (PEMPHIGUS)
Abstract Sympatric populations can diverge when variation in phenology or life cycle causes them to mate at distinctly different times. We report patterns consistent with this process (allochronicExpand

Defining firewood quality: A comparison of quantitative and rapid appraisal techniques to evaluate firewood species from a southern African savanna
The study analyses the firewood characteristics of 16 tree species from the dry semi-deciduous woodlands dominant in south central Africa. The important firewood characteristics used by rural peopleExpand

The Behavioral Ecology and Evolution of Kleptoparasitism in Australian Gall Thrips
We used a combination of behavioral-ecological and molecular-phylogenetic data to analyze the origin and diversification of kleptoparasitic (gall-stealing) thrips in the genus Koptothrips, whichExpand

Symbiont‐mediated phenotypic variation without co‐evolution in an insect–fungus association
Recent studies have shown that symbionts can be a source of adaptive phenotypic variation for their hosts. It is assumed that co‐evolution between hosts and symbionts underlies these ecologicallyExpand
